It’s September 2, and IUSD schools on the traditional calendar are open for business

To all students who are returning to schools on the traditional calendar, welcome back! And to those who are brand new to the Irvine Unified School District, welcome!

Today, of course, marks the first day of classes for most IUSD students, who will be streaming en masse to campuses all over Irvine. (Those attending the district’s four year-round schools started back up in late July.) Because the morning routines may be less familiar than they will be in a week or two, families escorting younger children may want to get an earlier start this morning. Moreover, local motorists are advised to practice a little extra vigilance to ensure neighborhood streets are safe for pedestrians, pint-size and otherwise.
